Episode Summary

EDIT
This episode introduces us to the six ice road truckers, men who haul equipment and supplies to miners in Yellowknife, Canada in eighteen wheelers across a road of ice. Road construction crews begin creating the 350 mile highway of ice. And when the temperature is just right and the ice thick enough, the truckers head up on their way on one of the most dangerous jobs in the world.moreless

    In this episode, we get to meet the first slate of drivers who are preparing to take part in the shipping season at the mines in the icy Arctic. There are veterans and rookies, and we get to know a bit about what makes each of them tick. The hazards of the road are ever-present: from trying to keep your eyes on the road during nasty weather, to forgetting to tie down your freight, many things threaten the safety and progress of the trips. Who's going to come up with the right ideas and have a chance to make the most money? Give this show a try and you'll see why it has so many fans.moreless
